Welcome to the UW-Madison Office of the Vice Provost for Diversity and Climate Innovation Program! Just watch the video module and do the activity suggested. You can also download a pdf file of the slides and activity sheets below each module video. Just capture your thoughts however you like. This could be on the activity sheets, with your computer, or in an innovation journal you keep. Just proceed video by video and engage other staff and students in collaborating with you on your own innovation challenge. You can share or discuss each activity you do in a small group or in pairs…even 3 minute conversations or tweet-style quick sharing in the group can make a big difference.
